With this tutorial you'll not only learn how to set up your site and ready it for membership in under 5 minutes, but also learn how to choose a Squarespace template depending on your use-case. Not all templates are made equal—some are better than others for certain business needs such as e-commerce, portfolios, or blogs.
All you'll need for this tutorial is a Squarespace account with 'Member Areas' enabled on your paid plan.
If you're new to Squarespace, click on 'Get Started' on the Squarespace landing page. From here, you can select a template. Not all templates are made the same so make sure you pick one that has the capability you are looking for. You can either preview the template or you can select start with that template. Name your Site and click 'Continue.' Now you can edit and customize the template to your business offering.
